Sepia Hours is the solo project of Sébastien Biset, a young Belgian musician. This is his first release.

Below you'll find his bio:
I had to centre all my ideas and desires into 7 tracks without falling back on the too brazen sound impulses that do not contribute to a coherent whole. Having privileged the musical aspect with the detriment of any experimentation, it appears however that research on the voice had come to a dispersion of the words in certain pieces. Words become echoes, they appear and disappear again, the voice always somewhere between singing and whisper mixed with the guitar airs and electronic lines. As the title evokes, this session of recording went through many steps (personally as well as musically), various climates (what justifies a progression of the atmospheres on this Ep). Sepia hours is a base for possible deepening and future musical wandering... Between guitar, objects (acoustic) of kinds and computer, between attempts, unavoidable errors, emotion (I do hope so..) and passion..

Subject: maybe a little too lofi?
i listened to this EP after listening to Sepia Hours' second EP on SIS (not yet available here on the Archive) and this one is very much in the same vein, sort of lofi/indie/glitchpop... however, while SiS-12 'naïve curse to leave a mark' has a rough, lofi sound which really works for it, i feel this EP is a little TOO 'unfinished' sounding. the songs are really good but i found it difficult to get past the low production quality. i think if the recordings were polished up just a bit, this would be a top-notch collection of excellent indiepop songs!

I really like this ep,

This is my second experience with listening a net-music, and I really like it, if you like this kind of music, I recommend this ep. The only (little)drawback are the mp3 files, but I can't complain about the music. Listen "summere's end", and you will get the picture.

a neat release from this brand-new label, pendling between electronic rock a la supercar (the japanese group) and dark rock of groups like licya and sopor aeternus, always mantaining a certain commercial output which brings me to put'em next to the evanescence. which, in this case, is not a bad thing.
